Eric Bittner (Rm. 127) University of Houston - Chemical Physics
Visiting Jan. 9th, 2023 to Jul. 31st, 2023. Bittner obtained his B.S. in chemistry and in physics from Valparaiso University in 1988. From 1988 to 1994 he worked with John C. Light at the University of Chicago and obtained his Ph.D. thesis in 1994 on Quantum Theories of Energy Exchange at the Gas-Surface Interface. Subsequently, he worked at the University of Texas at Austin until 1996 as Postdoctoral Fellow of the National Science Foundation, with Peter J. Rossky as his mentor. He was visiting scholar at Stanford University from 1995 to 1997, with Hans C. Andersen as his mentor. In 1997 he joined the University of Houston as an assistant professor of theoretical chemistry, where he became an associate professor of theoretical chemistry in 2003. In summer of 2001, he worked as visiting faculty at the Center for Non-Linear Studies at Los Alamos National Lab. Since 2009, Bittner is John and Rebecca Moores Distinguished Professor of chemical physics at the University of Houston. He has worked at the University of Cambridge, the École Normale Supérieure, Paris, and at Los Alamos National Lab[5] and has collaborated, among others, with Robert E. Wyatt.

Nuno Gomes-Loureiro (Rm. 132) MIT - Plasma Science and Fusion Center,
Visiting Feb. 1st, 2023 to May. 31st, 2023. I am a theoretical plasma physicist with interests ranging from fundamental plasma theory to fusion, space and astrophysical plasmas. I tend to work on nonlinear problems of plasma dynamics that can typically only be addressed via state-of-the-art numerical computations or, in some cases, approximate analytical methods guided by a phenomenological understanding of the phenomena at hand; often, I employ a combination of both. Rather than focus on the details of plasma behavior in specific environments, I frequently opt to identify and study the essential ingredients of a given plasma phenomenon, thereby rendering my results more widely applicable than otherwise. Thus, some of my research has been found relevant to a large variety of environments, from fusion devices and the solar corona to exotic astrophysical phenomena such blazars and gamma-ray bursts.
